. president obama took on the single greatest threat to the global economy today, the republican party. the president used the final news conference of his first term to throw down the gauntlet. after years of deliberate confusion by republicans, president obama set the record straight on the debt ceiling. >> now, the other congressionally imposed deadline coming up is the so-called debt ceiling, something most americans hadn't even heard of before two years ago. so i want to be clear about this. the debt ceiling is not a question of authorizing more spending. raising the debt ceiling does not authorize more spending. it simply allows the country to pay for spending that congress has already committed to. >> and of course republicans tried to trick americans into believing the debt ceiling was a blank check or magic credit card for the president to go spend whatever he wanted to spend. of course, the united states constitution gives the power to tax and spend to the congress, and the congress alone. our current deficit is the result of money congress has already borrowed. president oba

to 10 years to fight. this hasn't been fought well. not just a political disaster for obama. a military because many of our four star generals did not know what they were doing. the report produced by our own military shows it didn't work and it's more than time to go because we are spending so many billions -- we also lost 988 guys since the thing started. since the start. >> bill: not good news in afghanistan. we hope the french can handle the al qaeda in mali. on democrat, factor tip of the day. do not, do not fool around with mother nature. wait until you see this video. the tip 60 seconds away. >> back tore tip >> back for the tip of the day. the interview with the corporal hammar. mr. o'reilly sometimes i'm critical of you. i believe without your intervention corporal hammar would still be sitting in that mexican prison. i will never set foot in mexico again. and kudos to the corporal for his grace during the interview. and americans would otherwise be powersless time and time again, regardless. thank you for the kind words. big thanks to the brilliant cartoonist bruce kinsley w
